As we get older, it is natural to experience pain in sensitive areas such as the knees, legs, and back. However, many medical professionals recommend potentially dangerous and addictive opiates as a treatment for chronic and acute pain. Generational Healthcare has helped countless ambulatory older adults reduce pain in their bodies through several natural and non-invasive treatments. Here is a look at how our medical practitioners help treat pain in the West Valley City and Riverton areas with integrated medicine and wellness options.
Many adults suffer from at least one of the following conditions:
Osteoarthritis - The most common form of arthritis that affects millions of people each year.
Neuropathy - Weakness, numbness, and nerve damage usually found at the extremities including hands and feet.
Sciatica - Pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve.
While each of these conditions can cause issues in day to day movement, they can all be treated without oral prescription medications or surgical procedures. Here is a look at how we approach non-surgical treatment for pain in specific areas of the body.
